What is Matrix Repatterning?

Matrix Repatterning is a gentle manual therapy that releases restrictions at the molecular level.  Developed over the past 15 years by Dr. George Roth, Matrix Repatterning uses a form of muscle testing to identify lesions in the tensegrity matrix of the body, and then corrects them using light manual pressure.

Dr. Roth has written a Matrix Repatterning workbook for the layman. It explains in detail how Matrix Repatterning works and gives hundreds of examples of self-treatment techniques.  The book is called The Matrix Repatterning Program for Pain Relief.  (Published in 2005 by New Harbinger) and is available at and other major book sellers. Ordering Information
